Sketches in Thyme - #385

and I am back again with Sketches in Thyme this week - hope everyone is staying cool as we are in record breaking heat here in Alabama.

We have a great sketch this week from Nadine

And I really hope ya'll don't get tired of seeing wedding photos, but I am working on an album for my niece and trying to get it finished this year ;)

I also went a little outside of my comfort zone and sprayed my paper with some Glimmer Mist, the blue color didn't come out quite like I wanted but it is fun to play with different mediums, especially when I really couldn't find the right paper when I picked this photo

I do need to go back redo my circles, my gold glitter pen was giving me some issues and it is probably time for a new one.

Be sure to check all the fabulous inspiration this month, there are some great sketches to work with and link up for some great prizes too!!

Lets Scrap Sketches - Aug 15th

Welcome to the DOG DAYS of summer here in Alabama.. we have been experiencing some EXTREME heat the past week and I am ready for fall to be here, along with football and pumpkin spice!!

Got another great sketch from Let's Scrap Sketches for the middle of August - I really love the sunburst across the top and this could easily be modified for a single page layout too!!

No photo description available.

So I have been working on an album of my niece's wedding, which maybe she will get by her 2nd anniversary ;) but all these sketches have really helped me get a lot of pictures done - I still need to journal, but I think I will use my silhouette to do the writing so I can fit everything into the space.

Also I am planning a blog re-vamp/launch to start showcasing more of my work and the fact that I am a Close to My Heart consultant :)

Sketches in Thyme #381 "CHICK MAGNETS"

Happy July everyone - and it is living up to "Hot as Firecracker" down here in Alabama, I am definitely looking forward to cooler temps as we have been in the 90's since June and with the humidity it is miserable here!!

This week I am sharing this fabulous sketch over at Sketches in Thyme by Shawn Lahr.


I have been dying to scrap this pictures of my nephews and the chicks they got to take care of last year for school.  I have no doubt in my mind these boys will definitely be "chick magnets" as they get older!! ;)


There is a fabulous prize pack of some super cute Echo Park paper, Springtime.  Echo Park happens to be one of my most favorite companies, and I used one of the Boy collections for this layout.

Be sure to check out all the other fabulous inspiration from our other Mavens at Sketches in Thyme, I am amazed at the talent of our design team every month!!

Lets Scrap Sketches!!

Well I am finally back, life has been crazy busy and I do believe I have spent more time at the ballfield than anywhere else these past few weeks.  But I wouldn't trade seeing my nephews faces winning games they weren't expected to win and making it to the state tournament...  I would gladly trade the oppressively hot weather though ;)

Here is the mid - month sketch up at Let's Scrap Sketches and as always there are plenty of ways to make it work for you, it would make great single page layouts as well.

I am trying to get layouts done for my niece's wedding book, so the double pages really do come in handy in letting me get several photos on a page.

Better late than never.. Sketches in Thyme #373

Sorry for the day late posting... life has been crazy for sure!!

Another great sketch is up at Sketches in Thyme this week and I literally threw this layout together in about 30 minutes... it took me longer to pick out the pictures than putting the layout together!!



This is my niece, Paige and she just graduated from Nursing School in December and we are all so proud of her!!  I had Echo Park's girl birthday paper on my desk and it just seemed to work great with my pictures.



Hop on over and check out all the other great layout inspiration and sketches this month - I believe there is a prize to be won when you upload your layout using any or all of the sketches!!

Sketches in Thyme #369

I trust everyone has made it thru Tax Day!!  It was a little tough for us because we had to pay this year, but thankfully I had this great sketch to take my mind off that check I had to write.

Here is this week's sketch over at Sketches in Thyme by the talented Shawn Lahr.

No photo description available.

I am obsessed with this little hexagon shapes, I have used them in several of my layouts lately, they are so versatile and can really add a pop to a layout that might otherwise be dull.

Just a little background on these photos... our family CANNOT take a nice picture without taking a silly one, it goes back to when Kyle was little and it was the only way to make him smile, the promise of a silly picture after and it still happens with the twins - the learned from their big brother!!

Be sure to check out all the other great layout inspiration and get yours linked up for a chance at a prize!!

Let's Scrap - April 15th

Tax day!!!  Glad it is over with as we had to send them money, but at least I had this great sketch over at Let's Scrap to work with to take my mind off it!!  I really love this sketch because it can be a 2 page layout or two 1 page layouts!! 

No photo description available.

I really love the smaller photo section cause it let's use a ton of pictures, which with my nephews I always have ;)  These are from Allstar season last summer, it is really hard to believe that we are really close to that again this year!!
